Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry
For oral sedation, Dr. Hamlett will prescribe a sedative in pill form that you will take prior to your appointment. An oral sedative has light-to-moderate effects and will usually leave you feeling very relaxed but still able to respond to Dr. Hamlett and the team during your procedure. The effects usually linger for a while after your treatment, so you will need to arrange a ride home. You should feel completely normal by the next morning, able to return to your regular activities.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation Dentistry
Nitrous oxide is an extremely gentle form of sedation that has been used for well over 100 years. A patient simply breathes in the colorless, odorless gas, and after a few minutes, a warm blanket of mental and physical relaxation will envelope them. It’s an excellent option for someone who just needs a little help during their dental visits. Once a procedure is over and the mask is removed, its effects wear off almost instantly, enabling a patient to immediately go back to their day.
IV Sedation Dentistry
Dr. Hamlett, with the aid of a Dental Anesthesiologist, also offers the special option of I.V. sedation for the ultimate in relaxed dentistry. I.V. sedation is usually stronger than oral sedation, and you will feel its effects almost immediately. An anesthesiologist can easily control the administration of the sedative, and often, you will be asleep during your treatment. When you awaken, your treatment will be complete, and you'll feel comfortable and relaxed. With the availability of sedation dentistry, there is simply no need to avoid the dental treatment you need and deserve.
